LOS ANGELES -- From early injuries to a late-season flop, UCLA couldnt seem to catch a break last year.Coach Jim Mora is hoping the Bruins luck was just building up for this fall.And the best reason to believe UCLAs fortunes will change is the sophomore behind center.Josh Rosen is back to run a new-look offense for the Bruins, whose promising 2015 campaign was beset by injury woes and disappointing performances. UCLA still went 8-5, but lost two home games, two rivalry road games and its bowl game.Were coming off a season that was, in our estimation, a little bit disappointing to us, especially the way that it ended, Mora said. Wed like to make amends for that.The disappointment of last season, which was capped by dispiriting losses to USC and Nebraska, obscured the fact that Mora has built a durable winner in Westwood. UCLA hasnt won the Pac-12 since 1998, but the Bruins have been a contender for four straight seasons, which hadnt been true in the previous two decades.The Bruins also have Rosen, who certainly seems to be the type of quarterback who can turn a good team into a powerhouse.He passed for 3,670 yards and 23 touchdowns as a freshman, but hell have to hook up with a largely new set of receivers this fall.New offensive coordinator Kennedy Polamalu is building a run-based offense utilizing tight ends and fullbacks. The change will be significant, but it could mean big opportunities for Rosen, who will have the chance to direct the Bruins approach to a greater degree.Heres what to know about UCLA:HEALTHY AND HAPPY: UCLA never really recovered from losing three of its best defensive players to injuries early last season. Linebacker Myles Jack didnt even wait until the year ended before bolting for the NFL, but the other two are back: run-stuffing defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes and cornerback Fabian Moreau. They rejoin a defense already returning eight starters, although their 2015 unit was porous at times.TAILBACK TRIO: Paul Perkins bolted early for the New York Giants, but three gifted tailbacks are still in uniform. Soso Jamabo, Nate Starks and Bolu Olorunfunmi all showed star potential last season while combining for 923 yards. Theyll compete aggressively for carries -- and there should be plenty, if the Bruins new offense is running properly.BIG KICK: Kaimi Fairbairn, the Pac-12s career scoring leader, is gone after four seasons as UCLAs kicker. Freshman J.J. Molson is likely to take over.SEASON OPENER: The Bruins travel to College Station for an intersectional against Texas A&M. Its a tough trip, but Moras squads have played exceptionally well in similar early-season games away from Pasadena, beating Texas, Nebraska, Virginia and Rice during his tenure. The Bruins will have to do it again two weeks later on a trip to BYU.KEY GAMES: Stanford visits the Rose Bowl on Sept. 24, giving Mora his next chance to stanch his 0-5 record against David Shaw; Washington State, which shockingly beat UCLA last season, hosts the Bruins on Oct. 15; and USC visits for the 86th crosstown showdown Nov. 19.PREDICTION: Given how many important things broke poorly for the Bruins last season, perhaps its time for things to run in the other direction this fall. With Rosen at the controls, anything seems possible for the new offense. If the defense can avoid last seasons ridiculous injuries, UCLA is capable of a 10-win season and a trip back to the Pac-12 title game. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Harry-Carson-Jersey/ .

PSL franchise Quetta Gladiators have signed Pakistans Abdul Razzaq as their assistant and bowling coach. He will join the team for the second edition of the league, replacing Englishman Ian Pont, whose one-year contract wasnt extended after the first edition.Officially, Razzaq is still available for international selection, but his appointment could be a foray into professional coaching, which he has never done before.However, it has sparked a controversy as Pont took to Twitter to express his frustration about not being told that he was replaced after a successful stint in the first edition.I have just found out on social media, that I have been replaced as assistant and bowling coach for 2016 PSL runners-up, Quetta Gladiators, Pont wrote in a statement released on his Twitter account. Naturally, I respect the franchises decision to bring in someone else. That is their right.I do find it highly unprofessional not to have seen contacted by anyone from Quetta Gladiators about this beforehand, and only to discover the fact from a tweet by Abdul Razzaq who has been roped in as my replacement.Worse still, it is extremely late for me to approach another franchise in the PSL and had I been told what Quetta was planning, I could have at least had the chances to do so. The PSL is a really good competition and it was Shahid Afridi who personally advised me to go into it. I hope it goes from strength to strength.Puttting my own disappointment aside, I wish Abdul very well in his new role.dddddddddddd I am sure the fans will welcome him. Perhaps he can go one better and help win the PSL. Cricket is rife with poor communication and muddled thinking. However, remaining professional is a prerequisite regardless.Quetta were reluctant to address the matter in public, hoping to sort the issue with Pont in person. ESPNcricinfo learnt that Ponts agent was given a hint that the team was unlikely to extend his contract but did not get a confirmation until Razzaqs appointment. The PSL management has also intervened to address this issue on its own.Quetta were the runners-up last season, losing the final to Islamabad United in the UAE. The second edition is set to be played from February 2017, in Sharjah and Dubai, while the final will probably be played in Lahore, subject to security clearances. Pakistan wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed continues to lead Quetta.Razzaq last played for Pakistan in 2013, in a T20 against South Africa, and was last seen in Pakistans domestic circuit in 2015. His international career spanned 17 years after he had made his debut in 1996 against Zimbabwe in Lahore, a month before his 17th birthday. He has played 46 Tests, 265 ODIs and 32 T20Is, besides representing five counties.
